Small bones small bodies, sink into semantics
The slightest excuse - the tiniest exo-skeleton
She said, the fossil, it sets such a standard
Forgetting the reason - small bones, bigger problems
With this, I miss you, I finally admit that
And beg forgiveness, my finest exo-skeleton
I am the fossil, we are the fossil, that beg forgiveness
Small bones small bodies

Small bones small bodies,
Where's the harm in being accidentally miniaturized?
Who put the brakes on courages - my finest exo-skeleton?
She said, the fossil, it caused so much carnage
Forgetting the comeback - small bones, racist neighbours
With this, I miss you, I finally admit that
And beg forgiveness, my finest exo-skeleton
I am the fossil, we are the fossil, that beg forgiveness
Small bones small bodies

Grow into your body happily
Grow into your body happily

    General CommentFalco says on a podcast somewhere that this is about dealing with something as you get older. Only guessing but i think it might be dealin with the fact that you aren't always right (beg forgiveness bit) or maybe realising youve put up barriers and tried to be someone youre not which prevented you from doing what you actually wanted to do (exo-skeletons)

    Also Wicked jump up and down!

    General CommentFrom paperthinwalls:

    "It’s definitely not a love song. The “I miss you and beg forgiveness” isn’t really begging forgiveness of another person. In particular, those lines are begging forgiveness of yourself. Usually if a person makes a mistake, they can reconcile that with other people as long as they’ve got a brain, a heart, a soul and the means to convey sincere regret to people. But sometimes if you’ve got a certain view of yourself, if you step outside of that hastily and poorly assembled collection of selves, it is very difficult to [reconcile]. Self-respect is a very important thing. It fuels almost everything I do…When I think about [this] song, it’s a song about insecurity and growing up."

    General CommentI think this song's about getting into silly arguments and letting the small arguments (bones) spiral out of control and ruin friendships.Then realizing way after the damage has been done just how silly the argument was, and how immaturely the situation was handled (small bodies). That's what I make of it.

    That being said, wicked jump up and down!
